Abstract

The taxonomic position of three bacterial strains, Asr22-19, NBRC 101035 and NBRC 101041, isolated from shellfish in Japan, was determined by using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The strains were facultatively anaerobic, motile by gliding and Gram-staining-negative slender rods. Their major respiratory quinone was menaquinone-7 and their predominant cellular fatty acids were iso-C, iso-C 3-OH, iso-C 3-OH, C 3-OH, and C. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 42.0–42.7 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the strains clustered with the genus in the family ‘’. DNA–DNA relatedness values were higher than 68 % among strains Asr22-19, NBRC 101035 and NBRC 101041, and were lower than 28 % between strain Asr22-19 and NBRC 15940. The three novel strains could be differentiated from by several phenotypic characteristics. On the basis of these results, the novel species sp. nov. (type strain Asr22-19=NBRC 101262=CIP 109100) is proposed and emended descriptions are given for the genus and for .
